|This elegant Birds in the Air Quilt is one of the finest examples I have seen. It is all made of one beautiful and unusual printed fabric alternating with solid white. The quilting is excellent with a lovely meandering vine throughout the border. The scalloped and appliqued border is a most unusual treatment. It most resembles the quilt pattern Garfield's Monument but I have not seen it used this way. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition. It measures 96" x 100", ideal for either a queen or king size bed. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1850.|
